ABSTRACT A new species of the homolodromiid crab genus Dicranodromia A. Milne Edwards is described from the western Atlantic. The new species, Dicranodromia felderi, differs from D. ovata A. Milne Edwards, the only previously reported member of the genus in the western Atlantic, in having more slender appendages, ventral margins of the ambulatory legs bearing a strong keel rather than being rounded, and a more acutely spined anterior border on the carapace. Certain characters of the holotype of D. ovata, a badly damaged female, are redescribed, and it is suggested that at least 2 of the female paratypes, as well as some of Rathbun's (1937) figures and description of D. ovata, belong to another undescribed Atlantic species. The new species is compared to all other species currently placed in the genus.
